Organizations from every area of business are driven by marketing and its concepts. Marketing monitors and investigates the changing needs of businesses and non-profit organizations. Marketers then create a product/service designed to meet these needs including determining the price, distribution pattern and promotional plan. Marketing provides a well-rounded business education for those considering opening their own business or for careers in areas such as advertising and promotion, retail or marketing management, marketing research, sales, or international business. The marketing curriculum helps students attain general marketing skills as well as those needed for developing marketing strategies and policies.
